Adam Lind Pesky Pole Home Run Ball Controversially Overturned
Adam Lind hit a ball against the Red Sox Friday night that was initially ruled a home run but was later overturned by the umpires. The ball landed between Pesky’s Pole and the spot on the wall where the yellow line is drawn, making it a foul ball. Here’s a picture of the play caught by NESN:
Luckily for Toronto the play being overturned didn’t impact the outcome of the game as they won 7-6, but you better believe John Farrell would have gone crazy had they lost. The good news is we finally have instant replay to get the calls right. I have an idea for the geniuses at Fenway Pahk, how about repaint the wall? Tomorrow. Thanks.
